Ed, not saying that a radically designed USD fork couldn't be developed with a fork brace, but they're generally not needed or suitable for USD forks. The reason for using USD forks in the first place is increased fork rigidity without bandaids. I'll bet the Honda's...and most other USD fork equipped bikes...front tire gets really close to the front fender as it stands now.
